As the strategy begins to take shape, our Project Sponsors, Executive Committee and advisory groups will work together to establish well-being benchmarks and leverage evidence-based tools to inform future priorities.
Well-being Project Sponsors
The Project Sponsors are senior-level contributors to the Well-being Strategy. They represent students, staff and faculty/instructors, and make decisions based on the needs of these diverse groups in the York community.
